It’s list and pile time again. In a little while, I’ll be off to the stadium my loins girded for rain and chill weather.
I’ve laid out my new silk long-johns for today’s Poinsettia Bowl. Got gloves, muffler, polartec layers, hat, and coats. My whole goal is to be warm while standing outside in the rain. Ditto for the Charger game on the 24th and for the Holiday Bowl on the 27th. Then there are playoffs on perhaps the 5th or 6th of January.
Another pile has my thinned down wallet with Guard Card and ID. Next to this is my hand brace, cell phone, flash light, handcuffs….yes, I said that. I just added two disposable clear rain poncho’s to the pile. Gotta have piles. Gotta have poncho’s.
The Q isn’t as camera friendly as Petco Park is, but I have proof I work there. Piles of pictures sit next to my paper journal waiting for me to put them in.
There's me at football: Top image, on my ramp at the stadium…..see the foot up on the bike rack just like it isn’t supposed to be. Middle is worst picture ever with mouth flapping open contrasting with a chin resting on my knees. The very bottom picture has to be my favorite of all work pictures. Me not quite as warmly dressed saying hi, like I do every day, to Zack. His gramma brings him by to see us all, and usually he is grinning at me instead of this solemn look.
Duck: Yanked the little, velcroed-to–the-table box off his table and had cards everywhere. Reaching a state of continual confusion.
Me: See above.
G: He’s taking the afternoon off work ostensibly to take me to the stadium, but I bet he plays computer games after visiting Duck.
Weather: 53 and showers by game time.
